Flag of Athens Athens is a local power in central Greece, famed as one of the oldest Greek cities, the birthplace of democracy, and an important center of Greek culture and learning, and once one of the most powerful states in the Greek world, with a naval empire under the Flag of Delian League Delian League spanning the cities of the entire Aegean and Propontic Seas. Humbled by Flag of Sparta Sparta in the Peloponnesian Wars and subjugated with the rest of Greece by Flag of Macedon Macedon, Athens fell under the rule of Antipatrid Flag of Macedon Macedon after its failed rebellion in the Lamian War until the arrival of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonids in 307 BC. Now the center of the main Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid foothold in Greece, Athens faces an uncertain future in 450 AUC, with the Diadochi looking to resume war and Greece almost certain to be a major battleground again. While little now remains of its ancient empire, with Athens remaining in control of only its portion of Attica and its old colonies of Lemnos and Imbros, its dreams of greatness have not been forgotten and a careful ruler could use the distraction that the Diadochi pose to each other to throw off the Macedonian yoke to restore the freedom of the Greek city states under Athenian leadership - perhaps even revive the old Flag of Delian League Delian League.

Historically Athens would remain restive under Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid rule under various degrees of autonomy through their defeat at Ipsos and conquest of Flag of Macedon Macedon, attempting many times to regain its independence before finally succeeding during a period of Flag of Macedon Macedonian instability around 229 BC. This period of independence would not last long as Athens sided with Flag of Rome Rome during the Macedonian Wars, eventually becoming a free city under their empire. Still, its great schools and temples ensured that its prestige never wavered, with sponsorship from foreign kings and overlords alike cementing its place as the cultural center of the Greek world until the end of antiquity.

Missions[edit | edit source]

Main article: Athenian missions

With the Magna Graecia (DLC).png Magna Graecia DLC, Athens has a unique set of 4 missions focused on regaining its independence or autonomy, developing and regaining control over the Attica region, reforming the government to either seize power as a tyrant or restore the famed Athenian democracy, and restoring Athens's traditional hegemony over the coasts of the Aegean Sea and beyond. As part of these missions, Athens can reform into the unique Athenian Republic government form, release the holy island of Flag of Delos Delos as a special Vassalized.png feudatory subject, and go on to restore the old Flag of Delian League Delian League as a unique country-specific formable.

Without the Magna Graecia (DLC).png Magna Graecia DLC, Athens will instead have access to the Pan Hellenic Government Greek cultural mission tree, with the more general end goal of uniting Greece and forming the Flag of Hellenic League Hellenic League instead.

Regardless of whether or not the DLC is enabled, like most Hellenistic culture group countries Athens can also get access to the Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea if it makes conquests in the Asian, Bithynian, or Thracian regions, directing it to expand its influence and dominate the Euxine Sea region. Like all other countries, Athens also has access to the Generic missions regardless of whether or not the DLC is enabled.

Decisions[edit | edit source]

If the Magna Graecia (DLC).png Magna Graecia DLC is not enabled, Athens can still reform the Flag of Delian League Delian League by decision, with somewhat different requirements. As a Hellenistic culture group republic in Greece, Athens also has access to the decision to form the Flag of Hellenic League Hellenic League; this is not mutually exclusive with forming the Flag of Delian League Delian League, as long as the Restoring the Delian League mission tree was started prior to enacting the decision (though the modifier Great League Capital will not be applied twice in the same territory).

Delian League

The Delian League was formed by Athens and their allies to defend themselves from the encroaching Persians to the east after Xerxes tried to invade our cities. In these tumultuous times it is only natural for all the Ionian cities to seek shelter in an alliance with one another once again. It is time for us to rebuild the Delian League.

Pan-Hellenic League

During the days of Argead domination the League of Corinth united all Greek cities in one league. The goal of this organization was always to control them, and to deny them the independence that they are due. But the idea of a Pan-Hellenic League has not died with the oppressive actions of the Argeads and Antipatrids, it could also be the ultimate guarantor of Greek Independence.
Let us unite one and all and form a League to encompass all the free cities of Greece. Together we will become the dominant force of the Greek world, leaving the kingdoms of would be successors, or usurpers, behind us.

Reunite Alexander's Empire

For too long parasites and scavengers have made a feast of the Great Empire that Alexander spent a lifetime building. It is time we do away with all claimants, usurpers and delusional provincial strongmen. There can be only one authority within the empire of Alexander the Great, one upholder of the great Hellenistic legacy that this great man founded.

That one power could not possibly come from any dynasty but our own. Only a family that respects the Argead traditions can legitimately claim its legacy.

Diplomacy[edit | edit source]

Athens begins as a Vassalized.png feudatory of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom at the beginning of the game.

Pantheon[edit | edit source]

Athens starts with the following Hellenic pantheon, if the Magna Graecia (DLC).png Magna Graecia content pack is owned (pantheon deities other than Athena are random otherwise):

  • War: Athena Promachos
  • Economy: Athena Ergane
  • Culture: Athena
  • Fertility: Demeter Potnia

Population[edit | edit source]

Athens begins with a Population.png population of 90 pops at the beginning of the game, divided across its Local.png 7 territories. The vast majority of its pops are Athenian Hellenic, but there is also a small Hebrew Jewish in the city of Athenai as well as some native Odrysian Zalmoxian pops in its island colonies to the north.

Ostracism[edit | edit source]

See also: Character interaction

With the Magna Graecia (DLC).png Magna Graecia DLC, Athens has access to the unique Ostracize character interaction, reflecting the historical institution under which a citizen could be expelled from the country for 10 years by popular vote. Ingame, the Ostracize interaction replaces banishment and can uniquely be used on any character except the Leader.png ruler or co-ruler - even if not imprisoned - but costs Stability.png 5 stability and Tyranny tyranny based on the character's Power base power base, and can only be used once every year (much like the historical procedure).
